Young Cleveland Pitchers

What do you guys think about Billy Traber and David Riske? Traber's had moments of greatness this year - 1-hitting the Yankees - but has been hit well, too. Can this guy be a solid pitcher next year?

What about Riske? Any chance he might close there in the future?

Anybody have any info on these guys? Why did Traber throw just three innings today?

traber will be an asset in our staff...ive seen 3 games with him now. he has nice control but similar to colon, he needs to get by the 1st 2 innings and then he settles down and gains control. that of course all depends on cleveland backing him up in some offense and run support otherwise he cant usually hold it. even sabathia has come down to abnormalty, he was supposed to be great and i personnally feel he hasnt proven a lock to be the ace of the staff.
riske is a nice commodity too. but given time i see him only as average...i think davis has the stuff to be better than both considering whom ive seen pitch.
